Everyone is posting or twitter about Bill Brand the beer writer from the Oakland Tribune. He didn’t make it. February 8th after a dinner and beer event at the 21a he got crashed by a train. What sucks is that I walk by that intersection nearly every day and know from first hand experience that you can’t always hear what is rolling by. The train doesn’t make a lot of noise by design. It’s bell is suffering from the doppler effect. You just have to pay attention.
ShaunO has a picture from Friday the 6th during opening day pub crawl for SF Beer Week. it was taken at Magnolia. Bill on on the left.
